ACM Queue’s "Research for Practice" serves up expert-curated guides to the best of computing research, and relates these breakthroughs to the challenges that software engineers face every day. In this installment, "OS Scheduling," Kostis Kaffes, incoming Assistant Professor at Columbia University and software engineer at SystemsResearch@Google, offers his take on better scheduling policies for modern computing systems focusing on a trio of papers. The first paper challenges the putative tradeoff between low latency and high utilization. The second enables the creation of arbitrary scheduling policies by factoring apart the creation and manipulation of policy. And the final selection addresses the choice of policy on an application-by-application basis.
